Course Description

This 2-day course seeks to provide the tools that practicing reservoir and production engineers, along with geologists, can use to learn how the waterflood has performed, and what is now being communicating about the reservoir and its characteristics. The course will demonstrate how "listening" to production data, and paying attention to all aspects of the waterflood system, can pay significant dividends. The sessions will also provide participants a review of the basic principles of waterflooding, with emphasis on "Optimization" and "Improvement Potential". The course will also explore the entire waterflood system, including: water quality issues, water treatment options, injectivity improvement potential, identifying possible well impairment causes, and well placement options. Participants will learn surveillance methods, available waterflood simulation tools, and the economic implications of waterflood optimization. A number of classroom exercises and worked problems are provided. Participants are not required to have prior waterflooding experience to benefit from the course, but this is an asset. Participants are requested to bring a calculator to participate in classroom exercises.

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.
